I prosecute and defend in all areas of serious crime and have considerable experience of prosecuting on behalf of the CPS, HMRC and other government agencies. I have extensive expertise in fraud including cheating the Revenue, Evasion of VAT and Excise fraud, importation of drugs, arms trafficking offences and serious violent and sexual offences. I also regularly prosecute and defend in the field of regulatory crime and the proceeds of crime.
I’m also instructed in relation to civil claims against the police, in particular, actions for false imprisonment and malicious prosecution for both claimants and defendants.
I have experience in defending and prosecuting within a wide range of regulatory crime and I’m frequently instructed to prosecute on behalf of local authorities.
My particular areas of experience include:
I recently prosecuted a national solar thermal heating company in a widely publicised case concerning false claims made in respect to solar thermal heating systems. I also successfully defended a company director alleged to have been involved in the supply of millions of pounds worth of counterfeit Microsoft software. I’m also regularly instructed to advise in relation to, and appear in, Police Disciplinary hearings.
Finally, my expertise includes asset and tax recovery and I’ve been instructed in cash forfeiture proceedings and to act on behalf of local authorities in relation to confiscation proceedings in the field of regulatory crime. I also regularly prosecute and defends in the field of serious crime and in particular on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs in relation to drug importations, tax and duty evasion offences. In this capacity I regularly provide advice in relation to confiscation proceedings and invariably multi-handed cases with very substantial benefit/assets. I’ve also been instructed to appear on behalf of the AFU.
